Pearls of witticism from 'Bo the Blogger: Kushibo's Korea blog... Kushibo-e Kibun... Now with Less kimchi, more nunchi. Random thoughts and commentary (and indiscernibly opaque humor) about selected social, political, economic, and health-related issues of the day affecting "foreans," Koreans, Korea and East Asia, along with the US, especially Hawaii, Orange County and the rest of California, plus anything else that is deemed worthy of discussion. Forza Corea!

Picture of the Day: Lee in Dallas
Given South Korea's prominent role as a supporting nation during the Iraq War — though they saw little action in the relatively peaceful Kurdish portion of Iraq, South Korea had the third largest military contingent in Iraq after the US and the UK — it's hardly a surprise that the South Korean president, himself a strong proponent of the ROK-US alliance, would be invited. (Lee's predecessor, left-leaning Roh Moohyun, took a major hit with his base by sending troops to participate in this unpopular war.)
I'll ask the obvious question: What is up with Lee Myungbak's neck?
Here's my other favorite photo: Dick Cheney as a tough cowboy.
